Yes we're seeing this problem across the board. It's not just a Z690 or ProArt issue, but occurs whenever a cable is connected to the Aquantia port.
Absolutely!Congrats, looks amazing. You've been wise enough to replicate Golden Builds by Pastrychef and CaseySJ. Does save a lot of time, trial and error and tribulations for sure. The Golden Builds forum here is probably the most visited hackintosh related content in the world and for good reasons.
- First attempt: The Problem: OpenCore 0.8.3 and macOS Big Sur- I chose Big Sur because I plan to use this build for a combination of digital photography, video editing, and a bit of digital music production. I checked compatibility lists for the big ticket apps that I use and most of them recommended Big Sur with a proviso that Monterey support was still a bit sketchy. So, I figured I'd go conservative.
- Here's the problem: I could not get macOS Big Sur to recognize the Marvell Aquantia AQC113 10 GbE LAN adapter. I spent a couple hours reading through Tonymacx86 forums and doing some Google searches and reading. There were a handful of on topic posts in ******. I tried a couple SSDT's and tinkered with kernel patches, but... No Love.
I'm too old to keep banging my head against the wall...
- Second attempt: The solution: OpenCore 0.7.8 and macOS Monterey - I started from scratch, rebuilt the install USB drive with the O.C. 0.7.8 EFI and a fresh download of macOS Monterey and everything installed and worked!
Thanks! That's helpful.Regarding the Aquantia AQC113, it is actually not supported in Big Sur, which supports the previous AQC107 model. Monterey was the first to introduce support for both AQC107 and AQC113.
I wonder if MMIO WhiteList could make a difference. This is mostly speculative, but it’s one of very few if any remaining options.My BIOS version is 2103, which is the only one support 13th CPU.
RAM: I ran into two issues with the G.Skill Trident memory: (1) the system refused to boot when XMP Profile 1 was enabled - it just hung (disabling XMP solved that problem), and (2) it takes a very long time during POST for memory checking - probably on the order of 60-70 seconds - not sure why, but it just does. I'll live with it.
